    I really needed a laugh and this book took care of that need. There are so many wonderfully crazy things in this book that kept me turning the pages wondering how it would all turn out. Seriously, who would let a chicken or a cow in the house as pets? Would you hire a housekeeper who c...

    There isn?t a storyteller out there that can match with Jen Turano. Her ability to create vivid scenes, loveable characters, and a time machine to the past are apparent in each book. Flights of Fancy is by far my favorite story from her. Isadora Delafield may be a classy heiress but ...

    Jen Turano creates magnificent characters. Her people have every strength, virtue, flaw, and weakness they should to make them believable. If I had a quibble, I?d say that sometimes her villains are just a little too perfectly evil, but seriously, I like them just the way they are re...

    This book had me laughing out loud, such an entertaining and enjoyable read, I could picture this one as a movie! One minute our girl Isadora [Izzie] is waited on hand and foot, and the next she is in a quandary to dress herself, and how to boil water. How is she ever going to pass he...

    It was a lovely book! I enjoyed especially Buttercup and Elmer. LOL. My question is simply, are the next books about Beatrix and Poppy? ? It was a lovely book! I enjoyed especially Buttercup and Elmer. LOL. My question is simply, are the next books about Beatrix and Poppy? ?? ...

    One of my absolute favorites by this author. I think I actually liked our hero, Ian MacDREAMY, even more then Izzie herself. I've looked at the one star reviews for this book, and they just don't get or appreciate this kind of writing. It's supposed to be silly and far-fetched a...

    4.5 STARS!!! He had the sneaking suspicion her question was completely serious, which spoke volumes about her experience, or lack thereof, in the kitchen. Delightfully engaging, Turano once again takes readers on a fanciful jaunt into the countryside with an heiress seeking anony...

    Get ready for some trademark Turano humor and hijinks! Sadly this wasn?t my favorite of Jen Turano?s novels but it still had all of the things that make her writing so unique! From the creative cast of characters with all their varying eccentricities, to animals that seem to hav...

    'And you thought it wise to provide a woman who'd gotten herself stuck in the wringer of a washing machine with a rifle and bullets?' Jen Turano is a particular favorite of mine and she will have you laughing out loud all the way through her books, while learning a wonderful spiritu...

    This right here is the reason I anticipate every new Jen Turano book. There is a lot of laughing on my part when I?m reading them, but these stories also have depth to them. And Flights of Fancy adds even more elements to that winning combination. When Isadora Delafield goes into ...

    I am not a fan of historical fiction but I never miss a chance to read a novel from Turano. I love the wit and humor and the snappy dialogue. I think I have read most of her novels and this may be the best one yet. What might happen when Isadora, a young heiress to her family's wea...

    What a fun start to a new series! Flights of Fancy was a cute romantic read with relatable characters and witty dialogue. This book was an entertaining, easy read. It was impossible for me to not like the two main characters of the book. The author creates a wonderful scene at the b...

    Jen Turano consistently lives up to my expectations. If ever I want a romantic comedy to brighten my day, her books are always at the top of my list. Though it may seem far-fetched to have an heiress who's never done a day's work in her life manage a household, this is largely nega...

    WHY I CHOOSE THIS BOOK I pretty much decided Jen Turano's books weren't for me a few years back because they're silly - like to the point where my personality didn't find them fun anymore because they are so unrealistic. I realize lots of people really like this style of book and th...

    It?s no secret that Jen Turano is an extraordinary author. Each and every one of her books brings joy and a smile to my face. There?s not a lot of authors that bring humor to their historic novels, which is too bad, because I happen to think they go together quite nicely. Turano th...

    Turano is the queen of slapstick CF. This books has all the familiar things you?d expect to see in a Turano book? eccentric characters and animal escapades. The plot is a familiar one for CF?a woman of means disguising herself to escape a misfortunate marriage. Julie Klassen did ...

    A high society lady goes undercover to escape marriage to a heinous man. She lands her self in a predicament (or two) that she isn't quite capable of handling. Cows who can open doors, goats who have a taste for freshly laundered clothes, and chickens...everywhere. This all shapes up ...

    4.5 stars. Honestly, I could go on and on about my love for Jen Turano's writing until Buttercup came home. She is my favorite historical author. I know that some people have a hard time with the ridiculousness of her stories, but honestly, they make me laugh so hard. They are alway...

    MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK This book was a very delightful read! I love Je Turano books and this one is as good if not better than her other reads! Isadora was desperate to hide from the horrible Duke her mother was trying to marry her off to. Why he had been married three times before ...
